    Hello,
    I'm on a budget of around £700-£800, and i'm looking for atleast 4gb ddr3 an i7 and a fairly decent gfx card and 22" monitor, Ive found these:

    what one works out the best:-

    http://www.novatech.co.uk/novatech/prods/Barebones/Novatech/BB-9304G.html - Fantastic gaming pc, what else would i need.

    http://www.novatech.co.uk/novatech/prods/MotherboardBundles/Novatech/MBB-9306G.html - Also very good, which of the two work out cheaper to finish.
    ----
    Ebay:
    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/SPS-22-TFT-PC...-1GB-/160439362202?pt=UK_Computing_DesktopPCs - 6gb ddr3 22" included.

    otherwise I can get a 22" for around £110.

    Thanks what would you do?

    Personally, I'd go with the first or second one and customize it a bit more to my liking. Just depends on whether or not you like the case and power supply. Other than that, you'd just have to throw in your own graphics card, hard drive, and optical drive if you need one.

    I'm leaning more towards the second option and getting maybe a 7200RPM 1TB hard drive and a smaller SSD (like 128GB) for the system. I don't know too much about graphics cards (someone else with experience could probably suggest something nice and cheap), and you could just get a cheap optical drive.

    EDIT: You could look around here for comparisons of various cards at different prices.

    Looks like you'll need:

    • hard drive
    • optical drive
    • graphics card
    • monitor
    • mouse/keyboard

    For hard drives, I suggest you get a 7200RPM HDD in whatever size you want for your media stuff and then get a smaller SSD for your operating system and games if you plan to play them.

    Any decent optical drive should do you well, unless you want Blu-ray read/write.

    You could go with a GTS 250 for a fairly powerful graphics card, or bump up to one of those new Fermi cards if you can afford it.

    If you plan to do gaming, do yourself a favor and get a good mouse/keyboard combo. Your hands will thank you later.
